Showreel 2012 (Director's Cut)

Neuroscientist Jack Lewis (Ph.D.) has been showcasing brains, science, engineering and technology on television for five years.

This new showreel kicks off with a few exerts from his first solo presenting gig: "The Tech Show" on Discovery Science.

It also features a clip from Dr Jack's "Don't Be A Slave To Your Brain" strand on ITV's This Morning with Phillip Schofield and Jenny Falconer.

The open plan office EEG experiment appeared on Channel 4's "The Secret Life of Buildings" to demonstrate how the brain diverts resources into processing background sounds whether or not you are aware of them.

"How To Get What You Want" a.k.a. "Body Language Secrets" still repeats regularly on Sky2 and Sky3 after first appearing at primetime on Sky One when it first TX'ed in 2011.

The penultimate clip is from MTV's Plain Jane where Dr Jack provided some neuroscience-informed dating tips (alas, it seems that any mention of the brain hit the cutting room floor!)

And finally, a clip from Jack's first ever TV presenting outing, on BBC2's "The People Watchers" demonstrating the power of suggestibility. Jack had to convince an innocent passer by that a brand new "Welleniser" device improves mood and wellbeing. It was actually a simple metal cylinder which would usually be used to pull the chain to flush a toilet. One of many social psychology experiments secret filmed on the streets of London over the course of 20 hour-long episodes
